    Help with pricing

    after40 years of doing custom work my advice is , if u put anything on it that u can not resell, then u need to get 100% before u make. also on anything also get a 50% deposit

  8. here is a checkbook cover that I stamped with the Tandy 3d stamps and all was painted with sharpie pens. let dry overnight and sealed with a clear finish. no bleed and will not rub off.
  9. not a pattern but take a look at this
  10. Yes u can mix these two together. I have been doing it for several years. I will apply it to the leather before I apply any dye. It will give u a brighter color. after u dye buffet it real good.
  11. does anyone know where u can buy camo leather

      It's expensive.  I have some Advantage Timer and Mossy Oak- but it's like $8 per foot.

      I could sell you a hide or 2 at that if you really need it.
